    The cover art for the UK edition was revealed last summer and has itself gone through some subtle modifications (see: ‘SilverFin’ Cover Art Variations).

    SilverFin will be released as a trade paperback in the UK by Puffin books on March 3, 2005. The U.S. hardcover edition will be released by Miramax Books on April 27.

    Along with the new cover, Amazon has also posted its first “editorial” description of the book:

    This thrilling prequel to the James Bond dynasty shows young James at boarding school at Eton in the 1930’s, where he spent his formative years. Acclaimed British writer Charlie Higson, with the Ian Fleming Estate, writes an edge-of-your seat thriller that brilliantly plants the seeds to show how young James learns the skills that will eventually make him history’s most formidable and suave super spy.

    There are a total of five books planned in the Young Bond series. Book 2 will be released in November.
